Your football teams gone too

UAE detains member of ruling family over torture video: "Issa is the brother of Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al-Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy head of the UAE armed forces. He is also the half-brother of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed al-Nahyan, who last year spent £210m buying a 90% stake in Manchester City. Mansour is a key political figure, a member of the UAE federal cabinet and minister of presidential affairs. ... For decades the UAE has been portraying itself as a western-friendly country, ripe for trade and investment."

These are the people your swinish government runs around with, pulling fake smiles and greasing palms with slush money. They own your football clubs, they own your energy, they own your politics. Oh free trade! Oh oil! Oh f. off. "Fly Emirates" my arse.
